Watch Thelma Plum, Andy Bull and members of Art vs Science cover Dan Sultan's "Kimberley Calling"

Talk about taking a great song and making it something even more special - Thelma Plum and Andy Bull - with the help of the Dans from Art vs Science managed to do just that, delivering a stunning cover of Dan Sultan's "Kimberley Calling" at the APRA Awards earlier this week in Sydney. The song was one of the five tracks nominated for Song of the Year. The award eventually went to Sia for "Chandelier" - though given this rendition, not to mention the original itself, we reckon he was robbed! Be prepared to play on repeat...

After an incredible year of new Australian music in 2014, we have an incredible array of records in the pipeline for the new year. Some are from bands who we've been waiting to hear from again for years... some for the first time... others are continuously pumping out incredible music and we have no desire for them to stop! In no particular order, here are the fifteen Australian albums (some confirmed, some still to be...) that we can't wait for (or at the very least are hoping for...) in 2015:

Photo Gallery: Falls Festival Day Four - Lorne, Victoria (31.12.14)

As the sun rose on a perfect final day of the Falls Festival, weary punters headed to the valley in anticipation of another great day of music. Alt-J, The Presets and Safia were just a few of the standouts on the day. Our photographer John Goodridge brings you these photos from the final day.

Live Review: Falls Festival Day 1 - North Byron Parklands (30.12.14)

The misting stations offered the only reprieve. The barometer was pushing higher and higher and with barely any shade to be found, walking through a green tunnel that sprayed water at you seemed like the best option. Shirts clung to skin, whether through sweat or water spray it was impossible to tell, as the second Falls Festival in Byron Bay shifted into life.

Live Review: Thelma Plum + Angus Dawson - Amplifier Bar, Perth (15.11.14)

Thelma Plum reminds me a lot of Emma Louise, that same gentle shy awkwardness on stage, but utterly entrancing when she lets those vocals loose, with songs that foster adoration. Thelma played the Amplifier Bar last Saturday night as part of her Monsters tour and totally wooed the Perth crowd.

Single Stream: Thelma Plum "How Much Does Your Love Cost? (Dugong Jr Remix)" (2014)

OK. I know it’s coming into summer and we have been totally pushing through the summer beats. And this one is no different. Dugong Jr’s remix of the Thelma Plum song "How Much Does Your Love Cost?" is that cool that it's dripping with melting ice. Take a listen below – but beware – you’ll need a jacket. Or a skateboard. Whichever, really.
